Here is what's been going on in
First Middle School Dance
Darren was so sweet, taking a lot of time to assist with making Connor's tie perfect!
Handsome (but HATES dressing up, this was the best we could do).
Since I work at the Middle School with Connor, I attended the dance as a chaperone.
In a nutshell: there is no dance but a lot of flirting and/or chasing balloons (my son was in the 'chasing balloons' category).
The girl in me ADORED the formal attire.
Everyone looked great!
Even I had a little 'sugar' for Valentines Day.
Do you see the sweet little paper cup holder a student made for my Reese cup?
Darren brought the family the best chocolate covered strawberries (and so pretty)!
My little Valentine is still making her own way in this world.
At some point Carlee got it in her head that she wanted a coconut, so her dad brought her home one.
She kept it in her room like an egg, having her dad check it each day for it's 'readiness'.
The wait was NOT worth it.
She hated it but I can't help feeling like there is a children's book in this story somewhere.
At some point in these months, we had one of the wildest retirement parties I have ever attended.
I still wonder if I dreamed it.
I was a little sad because I think my boys have outgrown the local wrestling entertainment. I watched the other (younger) kids screaming with a wistful heart. I remembered how excited these two would get.
It was a funny night. #candyman
Connor was heartbroken to not play for his school, but he moved on and did a fantastic job for the local rec. league.
These boys played with heart!
I don't care how old you are...
Today we had 'The Last Supper'
I loved these fancy plate designs.
Also, I am thinking of adding to my hobbies with Middle School Minutes Vlog......(trust me, it's a thing).
It might also aid me with communication goals/ National Board goals.
First one HERE.
